1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX Turbo 2dr Hatchback AWD

Review

I bought my Eclipse in June of '97 after graduating from college and have never regretted the decision. Great performance from a turbo 4-cylinder and outstanding winter handling by the AWD. Unfortunately, I'm selling it this fall to upgrade to a more family oriented vehicle. It's too bad that Mitsubishi stopped making Turbos.

Best Features

The Turbo!!! Easy to reach controls (stereo, climate control) while driving. Fold-down back seats allow some space to haul. Smooth ride for a sports car and comfortable leather. Great Infinity stereo sound quailty.

Worst Features

Rear spoiler took awhile to get use to seeing through the back window. Stock mag rims are of poor quailty (oxidize and bend easily) and cost $275 to replace. Problems with stock cassette/CD player. Back seat...not really!
